We propose in this session to advance a relational conceptualization of water insecurity that is inclusive of other dimensions of hydro-social interactions – material, cultural, affective, and political. Such an approach opens space for cultural and affective dimensions, which are not easily captured by standardized metrics, to enter the analysis of water insecurity. In this World Café, building on a previous round at the AAG 2018 in New Orleans, we seek to engage and develop the complex ways household water insecurity intersects with other large processes and phenomena, including, but not limited to: climate change, health, technological change, mobility and migration, food insecurity, energy insecurity, and land rights and access.
We seek to foster a collaborative dialogue, sharing knowledge and creating possibilities for action in groups of all sizes. Designed around seven principles, it is a conversation-led process of engagement and sharing that seeks to advance dialogue and discovery in large groups.
What is a “world café”? A World Café is a collective creative process for leading collaborative dialogue, sharing knowledge and creating possibilities for action in groups of all sizes. Designed around seven principles, it is a conversation-led process of engagement and sharing that seeks to advance dialogue and discovery in large groups. The objectives of the proposed world café sessions at the AAG Annual Meeting are: (1) Create space for creative thinking about water insecurity research in geography; (2) Build collective momentum to advance ideas on how to improve, advance, and create new frameworks and research approaches; (3) Open new opportunities for networking among participants.
This is a session organized by the NSF-funded Household Water Insecurity Experiences Research Coordination Network (HWISE RCN, http://hwise-rcn.org.)
